Ok, where do I start?.... October started off with me baking a red velvet cake for a friends birthday. Well, I also made one for the house. I won't go into how many sticks of butter are in one of my cakes but it's a lot, a whole lot. Anyway, I ate at least half of the cake by myself (over a few days). Ok, one mess up is not so bad but it just kept going from there. I also had a minor surgery at the beginning of the month that took me away from exercise for almost two weeks. During my down time I just ate, ate, ate. By the middle of the month I finally came to my senses. I got on the scale to assess the damage and surprisingly I had not gained or loss anything. After that I got serious, I stuck to my meal plan. I asked my husband for help in the exercise department and we started on a weight training and cardio program, 30 min - 1 hour exercise monday through friday. My goal for October was to make it into Onderland. I didn't quite make it there but I came very close by losing 5 pounds in the last two weeks of the month. November is going to be different, I am starting to LOVE exercise and I am eager to make a lot of progress before Thanksgiving comes around. Do I have a plan for Thanksgiving?.... I've been thinking about it but any suggestions from my SP friends would be greatly appreciated. My family has already put in a request for my macaroni and cheese (more butter & heavy whipping cream & loads of cheese), another red velvet cake and a few other goodies. I'm thinking one day of indulgences won't do too much damage providing I keep up with my plan all other days. The problem is I will have some left over food around the house for a day or two. What to do? What to do?
